“Portland acoustic duo Duover (get it?) are likeable on many levels. Rebecca Rasmussen and Nathan Junior serve up lovely country folk that adheres to the rustic stylings of Arnold Schultz and Bill Monroe. They’d probably even serve you breakfast in bed if given the chance. That sweetness carries over into unassuming songs that are quirky and occasionally wander off to a dark place. Nathan Junior—who also does time with Fruit Bats and M. Ward—picks and strums with precision. But it’s all held together by those voices, which have the power to melt hearts and then put them back together again (try “Raining Love” on for size). Tonight’s performance will be recorded and broadcast for engineer Sean Flora’s StationToStation.” By MARK LORE from Portland Mercury (here)
